Subrinia Bogan's insight:

This is Stacey Rambold, a business teacher at Billings Senior High School. Look at this picture. He could have been your next door neighbor or a member of your church. Stacey Rambold is a predator who preyed on a 14 year old girl. Mr. Rambold admitted to the rape of Cherice Morales. What happened afterwards is completely jaw-dropping. The judge presiding over this case proceeded to blame the victim for the rape.

Myths & Stereotypes about Rape

Myths & Stereotypes about Rape | Judge in Montana blames rape victim | Scoop.it

It is vital for people who work with sexual offence victims that the myths regarding sexual offences are exposed. It must also be acknowledged by those of us working with sexual offence victims that we are not always exempt from believing these myths to be true.

Subrinia Bogan's insight:

A real dialogue needs to take place about these myths and sterotypes. How many rapes go unreported because of these myths? Rape is not about sex, it's about control and instilling fear into the victim. Because of the comments made by Judge Baugh  makes the victim wonder if she should even come forward to report the crime? What is so scary about this for me the judge is a supposedly an "educated" man who is spouting these ignorant and hurtful ideas.

Subrinia Bogan's insight:

This is the dishonorable Judge G. Todd Baugh. It was his sentencing of Stacey Rambold and the comments he made afterward sparked a social media frenzy.  According to Judge Baugh, Miss Morales was "as much in control of the situation" as Mr. Rambold was. He finished by saying that Miss Morales "looked older than her chronological age." Really? I can't believe that in 2013 is kind of thinking remains. Blame the victim? The victim is a chilid, an innocent child, who doesn't have control over anything. Do you remember when you were 14? What did you have control over?
